well thanks. Yep, the shovel is an awesome bike. Im really missing it (on the smooth dry roads, anyhow)
As last years trip got cut kinda short, next year I want to visit Syria, Lebanon, Jordan (maybe Israel, if the boats to Greece are running again)and will try for an Iran visa next winter. If that goes thru, then I'll visit Iraq again, and probably ride around the Black Sea to get there.
or maybe something totally different.
